Synopsis: After a dazzling meteor shower, the Nightbeast lands near a small East Coast town, armed with his vaporizing ray gun and a goal of killing everyone who crosses his path. As area residents are blasted to smithereens, the local sheriff and an ever dwindling group of survivors become determined to figure out a way to defeat this fearsome alien before their entire community is wiped out. A dazzling display of lo-fi ambition from Baltimore based cult filmmaker and underrated auteur, Don Dohler (ALIEN FACTOR), NIGHTBEAST immediately plunges the viewer into a frenzy of wildly colorful and stunning animation techniques, homemade gore effects, and awkward sexual encounters. Made for a scant $14,000 and featuring a soundtrack partially composed by a then teenage J.J. Abrams, this regional sci-fi/horror classic arrives in theaters with a brand new 2k restoration from the original 16mm camera elements.
